1 min read

Mysuru: Housing and district minister V Somanna directed authorities to suspend Assistant Director of Sports and Youth Empowerment department Suresh.

Suresh is facing the charge of misuse of Dasara funds released for sports during the recent Nada Habba in October 2019.

Somanna took part in the inauguration of sports meet for State Government Employees at Chamundi Vihar Stadium in the city, when he took the officer to task.

Somanna was surprised to learn that though funds of Rs seven crore had been allocated towards sporting activities, the winners are yet to receive the prize amount. Where has the money gone then?, said Somanna, who sought a report on the officer’s previous postings and his work.

Mysuru- Kodagu MP Prathap Simha, MLA L Nagendra, district incharge secretary Kalpana were present at that time.
